3-Ingredient Vanilla Ice Cream

Three simple ingredients, no special equipment and six hours to freeze: Can summer get any sweeter than this?


Ingredients

  • 1 vanilla bean
  • 1 cup 35% cream
  • 1/2 300-mL can sweetened condensed milk

Instructions

  • Slice the vanilla bean in half lengthwise. Using the back of a paring knife, scrape out seeds from bean. Discard pod; reserve seeds.
  • Using an electric mixer on medium, beat cream in a medium bowl until soft peaks form, 2 to 4 min. Reduce speed to low and beat in condensed milk and vanilla seeds until mixture is smooth and fluffy.
  • Scrape mixture into a resealable container. Freeze until firm, about 6 hours.
